Prevent Check Fraud

First National Bank of Northfield’s Positive Pay service is a check fraud prevention tool. It safeguards your business by identifying fraudulent checks at the time they are presented for payment. Positive Pay compares checks that are presented to your account for payment against a list of checks that you have issued.

How it Works

Each time your accounts payable system generates checks, you transmit a checks-issued file to First National Bank of Northfield. Our system compares your issued check data to our daily paid check file to ensure that all checks presented for payment have been authorized and presented for the correct amount. If an item does not match, you will be notified via email at 9:00 AM.
